Q. 2 B5.0( 3 Votes )

# By calculating the following polynomials f(x) let us write the values of f(1) and f(–1):f(x) = 3x4 – 5x3 + x2 + 8

Formula used/Theory.

Putting the value of ‘x’ in f(x) gives out the value of f(x) on ‘x’

We have,

f(x) = 3x4 – 5x3 + x2 + 8

When we put x = 1

Then,

f(1) = 3(1)4 – 5(1)3 + (1)2 + 8

f(1) = 3 – 5 + 1 + 8

f(1) = 7

When we put x = -1

Then,

f(-1) = 3(-1)4 – 5(-1)3 + (-1)2 + 8

f(-1) = 3 – (-5) + 1 + 8

f(-1) = 3 + 5 + 1 + 8

f(-1) = 17

Conclusion.

The value of f(1), f(-1) are 7, 17 respectively.
